Encouraging and Inspiring Players and Vocalists
Music is a key element of education at Ardingly College and we maintain a proud and flourishing tradition of musical excellence.
Our aim is to encourage and inspire pupils of all musical abilities. The Music Department is housed in a professionally equipped, purpose-built Music School, including a recital room and state-of-the -art music technology studio.
Music lessons are part of the weekly timetable throughout the Prep School and hymns are practised weekly . Musical activities range from Jazz Bands to Fiddlers and include a range of choirs for different ages and a wonderful school orchestra. Termly informal concerts give pupils the opportunity to perform in public.
During the term, we offer inspiring instrumental and choral workshops. Our pupils come together for a day with other children from prep and primary schools under the instruction of professional musicians to work towards a performance for parents at the end of the day.
